All eyes are on Sony in anticipation of the PS Vita launch. The sales numbers in Japan are making a lot of people wonder if the Vita is going to be a flop or not. Plus, the launch of the 3DS will be a direct comparison on what was done differently to see if the Vita will work or not. A bit of a shocker to come out of Sony's camp was that the Vita being released in North America will nto be able to play UMDs. The only was Vita owners can play their UMDs is to download the game digitally at a discounted price. Seems kinda dumb, but I've been paying for digital copies of games I own since I got the Wii. But, I don't think I'd slap down $31 on a game I already own...
Aside from that, there are a few tidbits to close out the week. It was a slow one.
- Tim Schafer and Notch might be working on a new project. The game being tossed around is Psychonauts 2.
- There are currently no plans for DLC for the new Twisted Metal. I'm pretty sure that will change once the game starts selling like hot cakes.
- The PS3 and Vita version of FFX announced last September looks to be a Remaster, not a Remake. You know.... just like those HD Re-releases
